A Few Rainy Days, TV Addictions and Delicious Meals

Sorry for the late weekend personal post!  I spent a lot of time hemming and hawing at figuring out what to write today but here it is…

This past week has been all about water falling down onto the earth.  My grass is waiting to get mowed as it gets longer and longer after a whole week of rain.  My trees are patiently sitting there awaiting its next trim so that it looks all beautiful and round, instead of having a bad hair day.  The best part in all this is that my flowers are all budding.  After looking at Marilyn’s gardens with her colorful irises, I was longing for mine to eventually bloom as well.  It probably might happen next week. YAY!

These beautiful flowers have started blooming though. They usually end up covering the whole tree with wonderful pink flowers.  Its always nice when the yard is looking extremely green. I snuck out in the pouring rain to get a few pictures of it!

I started on Thursday with trying to catch up on all the season finales that are happening.  I am TV addict.  I have a queue list for ones that are waiting to be started, another one for currently in progress but a season or two off track or just finished, and another one to keep track of the ones that are up to date.  Now there is even a list of upcoming fall season new ones to track.  This season has to be pretty good.  Its just about ended for most of them and I’m already done with New Girl, Vampire Diaries, Bates Motel (as of last night) and Elementary (as of today).

Next up is Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy.  I’d still need to search up whether they have their finales out yet but I’m excited. However, those ones are going to take longer since I only watched a few episodes and maybe Grey’s Anatomy, I managed to get to midseason finale and then I stopped.

Whats nice is summer is the time to catch up on all the miscellaneous TV (like Glee, The Mentalist, Grimm) and some already ended ones (Flashpoint, Gossip Girl) plus the awaiting to start list (Arrow, Sherlock Holmes, Downtown Abbey, The Following, Once Upon a Time, and more) since I only watch True Blood during this time.  Can I just say I’m super excited? There’s still a few weeks but its my guilty pleasure.

There is nothing deep about it and most of the time, I get frustrated with Sookie’s ugly disgusting accent but Bill is officially batshit crazy and Eric is super hot to look at.  Now, if we get in a few more stupid comments from Jason and then get Alcide back in the pictures, I think I’m ready to watch vampires and werewolves crazy go on ;).

On top of all these, I have about 4-5 Hong Kong series to catch up with and months upon months that I’ve fallen behind on those dramas. Maybe the occasional Taiwanese series since I’ve heard of a few that are interesting and silly fun 🙂 Lots of TV planned..now I just need to find the time.

Yesterday after dragonboat practice, I went out to dinner with a friend at our neighborhood joint which is a very good little homestyle restaurant of Chinese French fusion food.

Tonight I went there again to celebrate a meal with one of my long time friends.  Here are some pictures of what I had and the dessert is my boyfriend’s 🙂

This place is called Mrs. Amigos.  The owner is a super nice lady and the staff is agreeable and friendly. I love going here! If you ever are in the Montreal area, I urge you to drop by for a meal.  They may be a small joint but they offer very delicious food 🙂 I love the dinner meals like the one I had.  The shrimps were super delicious and the chicken leg with spaghetti is one of my absolute favorite meals EVER!

Plus, I was with great company.  We had a lot of chats and laughs throughout the night.  Nothing beats hanging out with awesome times with friends 🙂 It certainly made my weekend!

How is your weekend so far? Sunnier than ours in Montreal? Maybe more relaxing? Any weekend addictions? How about TV series other than my growing list that you’d recommend to me? I’ll always find a way to fit it in…

  1. I am sorry to say but I may be the only person that really doesn’t enjoy True Blood. I watched one episode and just didn’t get that into it. Don’t laugh, but I have fallen behind on GLee. Ever since that girl fainted at Districts, I just keep missing it. I think nothing can top the first three seasons to be honest. Great post and enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend 🙂

    • My boyfriend hated the first season with a passion..I recently got him to watch the 3rd season and he went on to watch the 4th and 5th by himself. Might be a good place to give it a shot…
      I didn’t watch any Glee in this past fall season but I have this thing about finishing what I start so I’m going to watch it…just slowly.
      I’m in Canada so we had our long weekend last week with Victoria Day. No Memorial day for me 😉 Hope you’re enjoying your weekend 🙂

  3. Raining today and next three in Michigan. Trying to refurbish my deck. Ugh!!!! Maybe rain isn’t so bad after all. By the way, I like it when someone admits to liking TV. I’m amazed at the number of people who say they don’t watch tv and yet they seem to know all the latest news. :}

    • No shame in loving TV. I`m a movie addict so TV is natural as well. However, I do stream everything. Catching up to the TV schedule is near impossible for me. Plus, I have no cable, only bunny ears so it gets tough to catch a lot of channels 😉
